Bournemouth brings customs in house

[ October 24, 2022   //   ]

Cargo First, Bournemouth Airport’s dedicated cargo handling service, has brought its on-site customs bonded warehouse facilities fully in-house. Cargo First previously worked with a global logistics partner to handle customs processing but says it now has full control over the whole cargo process, from offloading aircraft through to processing, onward loading and delivery. The company spent 18 months benchmarking freight deliveries via Bournemouth to London warehouses and found it could halve the time of delivery to the same end destinations compared with using a London hub airport.
